Duflo isomorphism
In mathematics, the Duflo isomorphism is an isomorphism between the center of the universal enveloping algebra of a finite-dimensional Lie algebra and the invariants of its symmetric algebra. It was introduced by Duflo (1977).
The isomorphism also follows from the Kontsevich formality theorem.
Properties
For a nilpotent Lie algebra the Duflo isomorphism coincides with the symmetrization map from symmetric algebra to universal enveloping algebra. For a semisimple Lie algebra the Duflo isomorphism is compatible in a natural way with the Harish-Chandra isomorphism.
